Brain Exploration by Michael Boyd and RaMona Adams

Read the two poems:

Poem by Michael Boyd

A powerful organ thou dost be
To reason and wonder perfectly;
To rear, to plan, to counsel, to absorb;
to train in perfect wonder accord.
How wonderfully madest thee.
With training and skill you move the doctor's han';
to steer and to train you're the teacher's plan;
cerebellum and cerebrum to name some of your parts;
the greater computer you are the state- of-the-art;
How wonderfully madest thee.

Poem by Emily Dickinson

The Brain-is wider than the Sky
For- put them side by side
The one the other will contain
With ease - and You - Beside
The Brain is deeper than the sea
For - hold them - Blue to Blue
The one the other will absorb
As sponges - Buckets do
The Brain is just the weight of God
For - Heft them - Pound for Pound
And they will differ - if they do
As syllable from Sound.
